Gears in one form or another are part of most mechanisms, but they are by no means as simple as they may appear. This book explains simply and comprehensively the underlying theory involved, and in its second part, how to cut gears on a lathe or milling machine.

'Dividing' explains how radial work on a metalworking lathe, such as the cutting of gear wheels or the drilling of holes on a set radius, calls for a method of precisely spacing the cuts. The principles underlying this aspect of engineering are explained in this book.

With the model and amateur engineer in mind, this is a guide to making light milling or grinding spindles with a small lathe. Spindles come in many shapes and sizes, depending on their use and included here are descriptions of the design, construction and use of a variety of types (from 19.05 - 57.15mm/0.75 - 2.25 inch) for grinding, milling and drilling. The emphasis is on spindles which are easy to make and have as few parts as possible - all but one use sealed ball bearings. The author is a designer, machinist and woodworker whose interest in clock making led him to design and build the spindles in the book. Also included is a light gear cutting frame for clock makers.

For more than 30 years the book Practical Gear Design, later re-titled Handbook of Practical Gear Design, has been the leading engineering guide and reference on the subject. It is now available again in its most recent edition. The book is a detailed, practical guide and reference to gear technology. The design of all types of gears is covered, from those for small mechanisms to large industrial applications. The presentation is designed for easy reference for those involved in practical gear design, manufacture, applications and problem solving. The text is well illustrated with clear diagrams and photographs. The many tables provide needed reference data in convenient form.
